Namibia’s Regional Libraries: Final Report of the Regional Study and Resource Center (RSRC) Activity Evaluation

Abstract

The Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA) at the University of Washington’s Information School was commissioned by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to conduct a performance evaluation of Namibia’s regional libraries, officially called the Regional Study and Resource Centers (RSRC) Activity. The Activity included the construction of three regional libraries in underserved areas of Namibia in an effort to improve access to information resources, training materials and programs, and study facilities. The performance evaluation comprises a set of quantitative and qualitative approaches to answer questions related to the relevance, effectiveness, and sustainability of the regional libraries. This is the final report of the evaluation.
